What's all this, then?

Since I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do with this blog right now, I've decided to post some of the strange doodles and drawings I've kept in boxes, folders, and cabinets these past 30 years. A lot of these things were done while on the phone, or while testing pens, or out of sheer boredom. There won't be any rhyme or reason to these drawings. I'm just grabbing stuff from off the piles, scanning it, and adding it here. Think of it as a game of cartoon Russian roulette. The neat thing about the drawings is that each one has it's own history and background story. There will be plenty of bonus posts and topical additions as the mood strikes. Forewarned is forearmed.

BONUS! Ich Bin Ein Klawspiel Prize

While I was out shopping recently, I spied one of those claw game machines in the store's lobby. You know those machines, the ones that you use controls to manipulate a crane and claw to pick up prizes like toys and clothes. Well, when I peered at the prizes in this particular machine, I saw this:

Yep, that's right . . . a plush President John F. Kennedy doll. I was kinda shocked and taken aback by the thing. I NEVER expected to see one of the US Presidents as prize for a kid's game. Seeing the lonely little JFK doll sitting forlornly in the corner made me feel sad. The more I thought of it, the sadder I felt. I knew I had to capture the wee guy in pixels for posterity.
